Creative Uses for Custom Patches

HomeBlogCreative Uses for Custom Patches

Embroidered patches and other types of custom patches have been around for quite some time. In fact, they’ve been used on military uniforms for more than a century. In the beginning, patches were handmade with love by the wife, girlfriend, or mother of a young lad going off to fight in the Civil War. After machine embroidery arrived on the scene, our World War I soldiers were outfitted with shoulder sleeve insignia to show their rank, and Fort Jackson in South Carolina had its own specialty patch design developed with a wildcat on it. The military may have been the first to embrace custom patches, but they are far from the last. You may have even had some as a child if you were a boy scout or girl scout.
